National Football League

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers joined the National Football League as an expansion team in 1976. They play their home games at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.

During the 1976 season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers became the first expansion team to win a division title, win a playoff game, and host and play in a conference championship game.

After a brief winning era in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers suffered through 14 consecutive losing seasons.

Then, for a 10-year period, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were consistent playoff contenders, winning Super Bowl XXXVII at the end of the 2002 season against the Oakland Raiders in San Diego, California.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are not a team with a national following so it might be difficult finding a sports bar outside Tampa Bay. If you know of any, please write to us in the comment below, including the website if possible.
